Over 64,000 of you know Rachel Bloom as the singing uterus in my “A Singing Uterus Explains Perimenopause and Menopause” video.
Now hold on to your ovaries, just one week from today, Rachel will sing & dance onto Monday night TV in the new musical comedy series, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend premiering on the CW, October 12th! Check your local listing for the time.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a romantic comedy that explores the psyche of a woman who abandons her phenomenal job at a law firm in New York, to find her high school-era ex-boyfriend in West Covina, CA – not exactly paradise!
Rachel is not only starring in the show, she created the show along with Aline Brosh McKenna. You may have heard of Aline, she was the screenwriter of The Devil Wears Prada. I loved that movie!
I fell in love with Rachel in 2010 when I saw her music video (WARNING this video is NOT PG) about Ray Bradbury. Of course, we all know Ray Bradbury who was the recipient of the 2000 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, the 2004 National Medal of Arts, and the 2007 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation. Apparently, Ray Bradbury fell in love with the video too (so did almost 3 Million other people!), and subsequently asked to meet Rachel!
I know that everyone does stuff, but not like Rachel does stuff.
Regardless of the topic, from menopause to obsessive young love, Rachel never fails to deliver gifted and creative tongue-in-cheek, hysterical comedy. As I watch Rachel’s career soar, I will always remember and deeply appreciate, how she helped tens of thousands of women, both young and not so young, understand and prepare themselves for perimenopause and lives of self-empowerment.
Thanks, Rachel! Next time I visit West Covina, I will be looking for you!
